We are approaching a milestone in Old Time Radio History.

September 30th 1962 is widely regarded as the end of old time radio. The last broadcast of Suspense and Yours Truly Johnny Dollar both occurred that night. This Year will mark the 50th anniversary of that date.

If you would like please share some of your favorite this day in history shows.
